Kate Middleton and Prince William Take Wimbledon Very Seriously

Jul 6 2014 - 1:05pm

Kate Middleton and Prince William were surrounded by celebrities at Wimbledon on Sunday, but their minds were in the game. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge couldn't contain their emotions while watching Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer in the men's final in London. At times, the royal couple looked excited, mortified, and full of anticipation. Kate reportedly donned another fashion repeat — this time, a blue-and-green Jonathan Saunders dress she debuted in the Solomon Islands during their Asia Pacific tour in 2012 [1]. The royals were joined by a star-studded crowd, including David and Victoria Beckham [2], who also sat in the royal box, and Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton.

The royal appearance marks the second time Kate and William have popped up at Wimbledon in the past week. The couple looked perfectly at home when they arrived for a match on Wednesday. The duchess wore a sensational white Zimmermann dress [3], which she brought along on her tour of Australia in April. The royal couple made the trek to Wimbledon to watch British tennis star Andy Murray face off against Bulgarian player Grigor Dimitrov in the quarterfinals. However, this is hardly Will and Kate's first year at Wimbledon as they've attended games together in 2011 and 2012 and tennis lover Kate had been a familiar face in the stands before she and Will got hitched.

It's been a busy week for the couple as they brought royal flair to the Tour de France with Prince Harry on Saturday. Kate attended an event for one of her charities, Place2Be [4], at a school in London on Tuesday and made a surprise visit at a conference about children's mental health at The Royal Society of Medicine on Monday [5]. William, meanwhile, is back in the news with a new royal portrait [6] of himself that was painted by Dan Llywelyn Hall for the Victoria Cross Trust and War Memorials Trust. While neither Kate nor William's son, Prince George, appears in the portrait, the artist explained that he painted the portrait to show William as a "family man" and show the concerns and hopes involved in fatherhood.
